Really great place to work. Never a dull moment, always projects and task to work on.Work closely with teams of highly skilled individuals.Expect to be challenged everyday but also expect to be rewarded for your hard work.
Compensation and time off are great
Working weekend and night shifts can be tough
I worked for Intel through an outside contractor and if I was asked by Intel to recommend that contractor I would strongly advise against it as they do not stand up to the ethos of the brilliant company they represent
Long lunches and set working hours
To restricted by management to do the job
Great place to work. I called it the university of life. Exposure to all aspects of running a business. Great opportunities to move within other disciplines. Very hard decision to leave
Great opportunities to move within the company
Very very busy
Intel is a fast paced, highly technical place to work. Exciting and varied work. Lots of opportunity to improve personally and professionally. Work alone or as part of a multi-functional team
Free cold and hot drinks and fruit.
Long hours - oncall
Went in as a intern but they wanted more and wasn't given the chance to complete and management don't have time for learning/ progression even though that's one of their ethos.
Good salary and benefits
Alot of contracts and very hard to get made full time
Very much a brain washing company into intel culture. A lot of internal politcs and social climbing within the company. It can be both a good place to work but also very toxic, poeple are always knocking each other down to make themseleves look good. Worklife balance is not bad and the company is fairly felixable. I cant say i love the place nor can i say its really bad eithier. Its a job for a couple of years to get experience then move on not a place to establish a career. The canteen and toilets in the place are absolutely terrible.
Politics, negativeity, worst canteen in the world.

Jobs at Intel
A stressful job in that you had to be always striving for next thing. This is fine when young & eager as we all were but when you know the job well you just want to go in and do a very good job. This wasn’t the culture. More better more & then some more or you don’t survive or progress. That’s fair enough once you’ve accepted it .
Always a slow start to the week and as a contractor there you are treated like a lower class citizen! No job security and no progression. No learning curve just get in a lash pipework in a quick as possible so you they can let you go at end of project
Day to day work is very detail driven as would be expected. This is not suited to everyone. Anything you don't know going in will be taught to you. Anything you did know going in will be re-taught to you the intel way. Some aspects of working in intel can be amazing and the information, technology and knowledge you have to work with is second to none, however, there is also a lot of repetition and documentation to content with. As with any corporation of intels size there is a constant stream of meetings and red tape to contend with, and innovation will either be encouraged or completely snuffed out depending on the departments management culture. Like any work place, there are pro's and con's, if you just make the most of what you can, do your work and go home the pro's should out weight the cons.
BIK health care package and stock options.
lack of accountability for well known management culture in some departments
The working culture at Leixlip is a disgrace and truly disgusting. A non exhaustive list: - People, including those pregnant or with young children just live in work. They stay there all hours and expect you to, too. So very sad for their families - Death by email, trying to stitch eachother up until you are completely thrown under the bus - Vast incompetence across the patch. 'Management' and system owners are completely out of their depth and have absolutely no idea what they are doing - Again I cannot reiterate the blame culture enough, trying to throw anyone under the bus to better themselves - Absolutely no team ethic at all, will steal ideas and present as their own. It is hard not to feel sorry for these people's families. They live in work, emailing all day long tap tap tap and trying to sound clever and act smart (even though they sound completely stupid) whilst actually achieving absolutely nothing. Horrendous people, horrendous culture. They cannot accept blame even when data clearly points toward them, there will always be some twist that makes absolutely no sense whatsoever that they will use to knife you. Worst place ever witnessed, never again.
Cut the grass often, smells quite nice.
